I will give the FKA, you give the NKA (Now Known As), or current name of the team. These are in alphabetical order by the fka. If you see what sounds like a current name, it isn't.

Rich got the current NY Yankees, Phillies, Bears, and Jets. I think he got mixed up on what the question was. The question was "what are these teams names NOW"....not what city were they from when they carried that name.

You would have done poorly on your ACT test by not reading the question properly! :blink:
